    Spotify - Security

    When I’m running Spotify on my phone, my laptop will actually have a message saying something like “Spotify is being used on another device, do you want to switch to this device”. On my Bluesound Node 2 there is no issue as it has Spotify Connect and you can control with the native Spotify app on iPhone. I just bought an SMS-200 and only use tidal and Spotify so fingers crossed that these work! What did you switch from and did you find an improvement in sound quality?

    SOTM Ultra or UltraRendu

    He heaps praise on most things. Loves the Bluesound as well. I saw this before I decided to buy mine.

    SOTM Ultra or UltraRendu

    Thanks Scumbag. That guy is so inexpressive he is hard to watch. I’ll see if it mentions SOTM. I’ll be able to do a side buy side comparison - decided to get it before someone else snapps it up.

    SOTM Ultra or UltraRendu

    Has anyone here compared either of these to a Bluesound Node 2? Unless I hear anyone vote for the Bluesound I’m going to buy snoopy’s SOTM 200 today

    Hmm. That’s Roon’s big downside. Pity it can’t run locally on hifi hardware.

    High end iem life span

    Better fit, better seal. More comfortable. Good for riding bike, gym. More isolating. The K10s are better, just not $1.5k better.

    SOTM Ultra or UltraRendu

    @scumbag can I just confirm that these aren’t laptop replacements if you are using Roon? You still need something to run Roon or do the SOTM and Rendus do it by themselves? If I get one I think I’d have to buy another computer or laptop to do the room part.

    High end iem life span

    I bought Noble Audio K10s (worth over $2k). My pair before that was Shures bought in 2008 that I got reshelled into customs in 2013. They still work great and if I had my time again I don’t think I would have bought the K10s. Or a cheaper custom. Universal not great, nor is the resale price. Good if you are buying 2nd hand though.

    BOWERS AND WILKINS 803 Diamond 2

    Nice marching Rel subs. What size are they? Did you integrate by ear or DSP?

    BOWERS AND WILKINS 803 Diamond 2

    Besides a couple of very high end speakers, these are the best I’ve heard, powered with a Krell integrated. Big. Stylish. And the sound I tell people I’m trying to get! GLWS
  11. Osborn makes centres to match your speakers. I was in the same boat as you thinking that movies sounded better using big left and rights, but other here think they’re very important to centre where the voice is coming from so i’ll try again at some stage when I get an amp for mine. Is that right @:) al? Also do you have a theory on why some people think the sound is better from the two fronts than two fronts plus centre?

    Concrete Round speakers from Canberra

    @Roundsound that is really interesting. Got any pics you can share? How do they compare to speakers twenty years on?

    PS Audio vs Devialet

    Think you’re right, it’s got to be about the bundle when comparing the Dev to something else.

    Nord monoblocks.

    PS Audio vs Devialet

    @scumbag’s suggestion of comparing the Devialet to a Grob/2Qute with other amps and source is interesting. I agree it doesn’t make sense to isolate the Devialet DAC because you do have to buy the rest of the bundle with it. It’s just how can you tell how much the Grob/2/Qute or any other DAC influences the sound compared to whatever you are pairing it with?
